I currently have OO 1.1 installed and have been able to export a single .html document into a .pdf document. I can not export the related page links into the .pdf document as tabs on the navigation panel.

I am considering upgrading to OO 2.0 for the added improvements, but I need to export documents with related links into a master .pdf file.

Example: If a web page (web site) contains image and text links to more html documents within the local web site (no external links to outside servers) can I export the entire web site into a .pdf document where I will have navigation tabs in the left panel to navigate to those linked pages?

All of the related documents are located on one Hard Drive.

I have seen this done with Adobe documents sent as a .pdf, but I can't seem to find a way to perform this task with OO.

In Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape 7.2, and Mozilla 1.7.5 I can open the .index document and save the entire web site in a folder as index.html and then open all the files as a web site. This is what is needed for a .pdf export.

Thanks for any help and your experience in exporting to .pdf files.

I don't know about Oo. If you don't need to go thru Oo, consider

Sheng-Chieh,

Thank you for your suggestion.

From what I looked at this converts a single file to any selected format. The problem here is that it does not look like it will include files that are linked to the file selected.

OOo 2.0 does do hyperlinks in PDF. I haven't tried it with entire websites though.

OK, now we need someone who can describe how it is done.

I believe this is not possible with OOo. It is possible with the full version of Adobe Acrobat. I believe it is worth the price of Acrobat because archiving any document including entire websites combined with Acrobat's OCR and full text searching provides a very powerful document management system and research tool.

There may be open sourse pdf management tools out there with web capture, but I do not know of any.

Hello Tim,

Thank you for your reply and thoughts. I am afraid you may be correct and that purchasing the full version of Acrobat may be required.
